CAO Flathead

A real blockhead....


‘Murica, son! The home of hot rods, pin-up chicks, and now CAO’s newest offering: Flathead. Borrowing inspiration from muscle cars, CAO Flathead not only sports a highly unique shape, but backs it up with a high-octane blend. So what's so unique about the shape? Instead of a traditional head (rounded or torpedo shaped), this sleek handmade is flat headed, meaning it's completely squared off.

Heavy in the hand, this dark creation starts with a well-fermented Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Thick and chewy, this leaf conceals a bevy of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers embraced by a Connecticut Habano-seed binder. Then, each cigar is carefully box-pressed, truly bringing the unique head to light. Churning out a mix of spicy-sweet goodness, expect hints of earth, black pepper, and cocoa throughout a full-bodied experience.

And if you're looking to spruce up your man cave, good news! Each box lid is removable, making for a nice wall-hanger or conversation piece.

CAO Flathead received Top 25 honors for 2015 (#3 overall) and an impressive 95-rating noting: "From the first light, this seriously squared-off cigar takes off with notes of ripe fruit, leather and molasses that only gain intensity as it smokes."

One of my favorite cigars, I've given some away to friends they love them and they've come here to Cigars International to buy their own CAO Flatheads V660 Carb. This is my go to cigar. Unfortunately I just finished my last one. I will be buying more...and very shortly might I add

Enjoyed this smoke very much, compares to a Fuentes maduro chateau, or a Punch punch which I also love, and all with a good whiskey of course !!

Excellent cigar, not just for the money
This is now one of my favorite cigars. It just so happens to be very affordable. The cigar draws nicely. The only issue i've found is that unless you clip the cap, it will likely come off while smoking. I suggest this cigar with a very dark roast coffee or espresso.

Rich and tasty maduro
I really enjoyed these. They came in a sampler, and I normally avoid cigars this thick, but seeing as it was the #3 cigar in the world a while back, I figured I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did. It's a full-bodied smoke, but smooth and creamy as well. Lots of hickory, coffee bean, and a bit of sweetness. Great construction too, which is impressive given the massive siz and sharp press. I think most maduro fans will really dig this. I would definitely buy again, though probably in the 42 or 54 ring gauge, as even with a box press, this is just a bit too thick for me,

Great cigar! Like the big ring size.

Enjoyable
I like variety and this is one I like to keep around, along with some other CAO lines. To me this is on the strong side of mediume to strong. It is a pleasant smoke with lots of flavor, burns well, holds the ash for close to an inch, good draw, all around good stogie. An example: I live in SC and my son lives in PA, he emails me asking if I had ever had a CAO Flathead 660 (I had), saying how good it was and I should try one. I told him I agreed and always keep a few around. After talking about this, I will probably have one tonight.

JCP Flathead 660 Carb review
The CAO Flathead 660 is a great cigar. I had been anticipating a good smoking experience with this stick, and it did not disappoint. Great structure, smooth and oily with great aroma, good smoke output, creamy and smooth texture. The cigar had some body but not overwhelmingly strong. Sharp burn, ash held on almost through the first half of the cigar. Flavors we're smooth and rich, sweet with a hint of cocoa and a little earthiness. Will be keeping a few of these in my humidor.

When A Widely-Heralded Smoke Is Just Pretty Good
I heard and read a lot about these sticks being home runs and thought I'd try a fiver. Overall, they're very good. Good burn, well made, quality ingredients for sure. However, given their reputation, I was a little surprised about the straightforward flavor profile throughout. They definitely deliver a good kick, but there isn't much nuance here. Nuance and strength is a hard combination. These have the strength covered. The flavor is solid, but probably not spectacular. I much prefer the CAO MX2, CAO Gold and CAO Brazilia.
5 out of 5
A winner!
I would consider, according to my taste, a CAO masterpiece. From the first sniff of the wrapper I you will get the aroma of dark chocolate. This stick puts out nice thick, chewy smoke. The aroma is intoxicating. It is on the upper end of the nicotine scale. Built to satisfy and VERY enjoyable. If you are in for a fast smoke, this is NOT the cigar for you. It seems to last forever. Tight ash and even burn. Excellent construction and nice draw. One of my favs hands down. I have smoked a lot of maduros and other CAO's as well. Will definitely buying a box of these! I received it in perfect smoking condition from CI.

Great smoke!
Love this whole line from CAO. The 770 is an absolute monster. Perfect for a BBQ, block party, or whatever, when you have 3-4 hours to enjoy it. The few I've had so far have all been well constructed and burned nicely all the way through.
5 out of 5
Just buy them.
One of my favorite cigars. The draw, burn, and flavor is this Lancero Flathead are amazing. The construction on this cigar and Most all CAO cigars is excellent. The taste is excellent as well, notes of spice, leather, cream, coffee, and slight cedar. There is a kind of mineralness to this cigar as well, which for me is somewhat unusual. I cant say enough about these smokes. Just buy them.

This will change how you think of cigars
This is the cigar that changed everything for me. Prior to this cigar, I was struggling to identify all of those bizarre flavors listed for cigars, and to understand the difference between different wrappers and brands. After one of these, it all became so clear. There are two types of cigars: 1. Flathead, 2. Not-Flathead. Now I rank every cigar against the Flathead in terms of construction, burn, flavor, smoke feel, and smell. People ask me, "Are they really that good?" The answer is always a resounding, "Yes!" They are chronically out of stock at places and for good reason. Unfortunately, basic economics says that CAO should raise the price. Santa brought me a box of these for Christmas and I treasure each one as I smoke it.

One of the best on the market
This cigar is incredible! I bought a 5 pack of the 660 and swapped one of these with a friend. Fell in love within the first 10 minutes. This is not a cigar to power through. Take your time and really enjoy the flavors and construction. I used a punch and the cap stayed perfectly flat and square the entire 1.5 hours of smoke time. Do not smoke on an empty stomach because the strength is real. Absolutely love them. Smoking a 660 this weekend. Enjoy!

Well worth the money
Very great cigar. I was worried about it being a full bodied cigar because I tend to have the heavier ones burn/hurt my throat but that could just be my fault and need to adjust my smoking. At any rate, I loved this cigar. Very smooth, awesome even burn, ashes stuck together nicely, I had to only light it 1x and there were times I let it sit a minute or two. Well well well worth the money.

What happened to the original "raised fin" box?
Great cigar, but the textured boxes seem to have been replaced with plain printed ones! The original boxes were designed with raised "cooling fins".
5 out of 5
One of the best I've ever smoked!
Not quite sure where to start! This is the longest smoking cigar I've ever had, yet it never got bitter and the draw was perfect. A very bold cigar, well constructed and just a joy to smoke. Top 5 all time cigar for me.
5 out of 5
My new favorite!
So, I've only been smoking for a year or so, and, yes, I know there are more options out there, but, at the risk of sounding like I'm all "giddy", I have to sing this stick's praises! LOL Originally tried this at a spot that I sometimes visit (The Tinderbox, Waldorf, Md.) and fell in love with it. Since purchasing about 2 months ago, I've only had one of the five. I'm letting the other 4 rest til Summer!!! Burns great, great smoke, great ash, full, but, not overpowering! Love it!!!

Staple for your humidor!
Excellent cigar! On the bolder side but not too overbearing. Long lasting. This cigar is for the aficionado that enjoys a smooth but bolder cigar.

So good!
So good! This is quickly becoming one of my favorite smokes. I've had the 770 and the 660 and am going to try the others as well. Great construction, great burn and tons of cool smoke. It's full bodied but not overpowering or spicy, smooth and consistent the whole stick. Be forewarned, the 770 is a 3 hour smoke! Its a marathon lol.

Heavyweight 660
Very good stick. Heavy in the hand and I like that. Picked up on flavors of leather and molasses but not so much the fruit. Lots of thick plumes of smoke with a very even burn and excellent construction. Very worthy of its high score and I would definitely recommend the 660 to everybody.

Great Cigar. Amazing value.
If you love the 660 you may find the 642 has more flavor and is better for those times when you don't have 90 minutes or more to enjoy a smoke. The 642 is smooth and has a consistent draw like the CAO of old. Welcome back CAO. We missed you.

#3 Cigar for 2015 with a 95 Rating?
Yep, and well deserved. The look, flavor, and even burn, makes smoking this cigar a wonderful experience; its size elevates the experience into a memorable event. I've yet to smoke the cigar when alone. Rather, always in the company of good friends, drinks, conversation. It keeps its even burn and flavor right down to the nub while the drinks keep coming and the dialog among friends never broken to relight the cigar. (The only caveat(s), and I say this because the cigar is worthy of the smoker making a commitment to it; I would not recommend this cigar for the lightweight, the novice, nor the person looking for "something" to smoke for thirty-minutes.)

I enjoyed the girth of the cigar and excellent flavor. This cigar can easily be smoked in excess of three hours. A very good value also.

For the Better
I wanna let it be known this led me to buy a 70 ring cutter, the brand was Xikar, these now melt like butter.. Smoking rather enjoying this cigar at just the right length, funny how a simple cutter and a short shrink can change the presentation I think. For the better should be the header.

FLATHEAD 660 has the power
CAO Flathead V660 Carb deserves it's high rating. Living in the Connecticut River Valley I've been around a lot of fine tobacco all my life and love a good maduro broadleaf wrapped cigar, this is one of the best. Thick, oily, and chewy starting off with a little sweetness and developing into a smooth full body cigar with a rich whitish blue smoke I can't put this one down until my fingers burn. Give this one a try- it's well worth it!

CAO Flathead V450 Sparkplug
Sparkplug seemed somewhat hotter and harsher than the piston. Could be because of the size difference. I'll keep trying the different sizes because this is a very very good blend plus I like the square look.

An amazing cigar, love the hotrod theme they give with the names of the sizes and logo

Great cigars!
Highly recommend the Flathead V450. Although they are rated as "full" I don't like cigars that are real strong and was pleased that these were perfect. They burn smooth and for me were just the right burn time. One of the best overall cigars I have smoked.

Dave Z in Colorado
My son called the 770 a 'Railroad Tie.' I've had several 660s and bought the 770 for the novelty and had a good 2 hour and 20 minute fall afternoon puff. It took a few minutes to get used to the size of it at my lips but certainly a good flavor and smoothness as well as even,comfortable draw. The Flatheads are a solid stick and I look forward to finishing the 5-pack and will buy more Flatheads of various sizes.

Accidentally ordered these cigars...
...they're as big as a baby arm! My biggest cigar cutter is too small; need a French guillotine to cut the end off. That being said, THEY'RE FANTASTIC. A cigar aficionado would certainly say it's too hard to light, too much for a single smoke, too big in the mouth, could cause divorce, global warming, ... however, in the most decadent way, I really enjoyed these.

The Flathead BB is huge, has good draw and flavor, but it's box pressed squareness is off-putting in mouth feel to me. I prefer the brands Steel Horse Bullne*k in this regard. (My "see" key is kaput)

My new go to cigar!
Great sticks at an awesome price. Smooth draw with awesome flavor from draw to finish. Oily, hint of spice on the tip of your tongue, nutty with a bit of sweetness. Planning on keeping a stock of these in my humidor at all times.

What a big and beautiful cigar. The sweet aroma that from emanates from this stick is wonderful. Unparalleled quality at an affordable price. I do note that this is a lot of tobacco in one smoke, so you will definitely feel overloaded if you're new to cigar.

A awesome smoke.
Full body , thats for sure, not a breakfast cigar. I had it after dinner and it was awesome, makes me want to try the entire line up. CAO is a great cigar company. Ive yet to have a cigar from them that didn't draw perfectly. If you like full bodied cigars, you will like this one.

Fabulous Flathead
I ordered the CAO Flathead V660 carb recently and have to say that it is an outstanding cigar. The cigar burns very well and evenly. The taste is outstanding and lives up to its #3 rating with Cigar Aficionado. I passed a couple of them off to my buddies on Labor Day, they in turn are planning to order some of their own. Hopefully, they'll share with me too. Overall it does live up to its rating of 95 and I think that you will agree.

A Quicker Smooth Smoke
This little stick packs a great deal of flavor in a small stick. It's got flavor without the afterbite of larger "full" cigars. I typically finish one in under an hour and enjoy every minute of it.
5 out of 5
Great Flatehead taste in a smaller size
Love these little fireplug of a cigar. Has a cute little pig tail on the burn end. First enjoyed the Flathead series with the 660 but wanted a smaller smoke with the same impact. These little gems fit the bill for a full flavor smoke when time is of the essence.

CAO Flatheads
Recently bought a box of the CAO Flathead Carbs since love the box press and these V660's have a nice bold balance at the start with a great burn and almost a leathery/tawny finish...great smoke for those who enjoy strong but not overpowering flavor without a spice.

CAO Flathead 660
The best cigar I ever smoked. Can't wait to finish this box so I can order another one

CAO....You can't go wrong
The 660 Flathead is one of the best cigars on the market in my opinion. Only next to the 770 of course. A good smooth long smoke, for those that can handle it.

The CAO Flathead 660carb is Exceptionally good!
This cigar is a powerhouse of flavors. There are times when I smoke this stick and I swear I think it's transitioning flavors as it burns from foot to cap. Mostly, I've come to believe it just has those great flavors of sweet spice, leather, coffee, and perhaps just a hint of baker's chocolate. The leather comes across as a "salty-sweet" taste and I think all of these flavors just tend to intensify as you smoke it and get closer to the nub. I did notice the strength doing the same though, too. So, remember to eat something before you smoke this stick. Think of this as a dessert stick for an after dinner treat!

alittle disappointed,very hard draw.could'nt wait to finish the stick as it was work to smoke it.did'nt matter if you used a punch or v cutter still hard draw.which in turn makes it harsh.loved the 660's so i guess i'll stick with them.i'll be handing out the rest of the 642 so they wont take up room in hum.

CAO Flathead V554 Camshft - My new favorite stick
This is my second box of the Flathead and I have to say it's my new favorite stick! From the moment you light it until you burn your fingers trying to get every last puff, this cigar delivers a full favor with plenty of smoke. CAO's are always good but this one is the best! Try it, it won’t disappoint!

Relatively Small Package - Big Pleasure
I bought my first box because it was on sale. What a positive surprise. This cigar is do well made, it lasts over an hour, even though it is only 4.5X5. And has such a great taste. I have ordered additional boxes at fullo price, and happy to do so. Tje cigar comes advertised as maduro, but has the full flavor of a madura, without the harshness. Love the cigar, recommend it to anyone looking for a smooth, but flavorful smoke.

Usually not a fan of the 60 ring size, but after reading the Cigar Afficiando review I had to give it a try. All I can say is that they nailed it. I've had a few of the other sizes. All good smokes. But the V660 is my favorite. Great flavors. Nice slow and even burn. A perfectly fat cigar for a fat old guy!!!

Full Flavor No Bite
A great smoke. No canoeing, no tunneling, burns well, no funny acid taste you sometimes get on the mouth end of a cigar. Very smooth but yes, full flavor, it will kick your butt! I didn't really taste any pepper notes but it's strong and I really like it. Hopefully they keep the prices reasonable for a 95 rated cigar. Around $5 a stick now, if you can get it cheaper your lucky.
5 out of 5
Flatheads - always a good choice
Quality construction, draw, taste, you name it, everything you look for in a stick is found in this one. But be warned - there are no V cutters that can bite this. This stick requires a punch cutter.

This was the very first time smoking this cigar and it did not disappoint. CAO has done it again. From first light to the last draw the cigar burned evenly. The draw was wonderful. This full body cigar was everything as advertised.

Great Cigars!
I just like CAO in general, and I don't think I have ever had a bad CAO cigar. I am sure someone would beg to differ, and no business is perfect, but they are usually pretty solid. This box of 30 Flathead 642's is great, great packaging too. I wish they were a little cheaper, but with these I think you get what you pay for. I feel like the 642's are more rare, but buying in bulk is saving quite a bit of money over local stores too.

long burning, great draw, great taste. One of my favorite cigars, ever.

Amazing!
This and the Padron 1964 Exclusivo Maduro are my top 2 cigars. This Flathead is box-pressed which makes it intense and slow burning. It is full-flavored and you definitely taste cocoa. The Connecticut broadleaf wrapper is the best wrapper I've ever had, hands down. CAO hit it out of the park! At a lower cost than I'd expect as well.
5 out of 5
Best ever
Just got these 2 days ago and WOW. Only thing that might have made them better was having the Swedish bikini team smoking them with me.. All joking aside, what a cigar!! From the first puff to the nub nothing but fantastic favors, great ash, perfect burn and did I mention fantastic flavors. One of, in fact the best cigar I have smoked thus far. I'm not a pro but I would give this cigar 10 stars if I could. They were on back order and the wait was worth it. Gonna order more early so I do run out if the are ever on back order again. Now back to my thoughts about the Swidish Bikini team......

Really enjoyable smoke - unique!
Have now smoked 5 of the 7x70's and half a box of 6x60's. When these smokes first came out I thought it was a goofy marketing gimmick. Now, I can admit I was dead wrong and these smokes are worth your time. Both have the rich cocoa flavor described, but I also taste a distinct leather in the smoke and wrapper. The 70's are a 3 hour smoke, especially perfect when my wife says I can only have "one cigar", and I am under observation! Sometimes the draw is a bit to tight, but loosens with a little rolling of the head. I REALLY like these smokes. CAO hit it out of the park on construction (perfect), taste, burn and price point. While it is "full" on flavor, I would rate the strength as medium. Well done CAO!! While I am at it - CI is the best cigar buying internet experience going. Helpful folks staffing phones, great website, dependable shipping and overall, great pricing! Thanks Michael

Flathead Review
I selected the Flathead after first trying the Big Block and was not disappointed. The Flathead delivers a rich, creamy smoke with no bitter aftertaste. The cigar construction is excellent. It smokes evenly with no wrapper splitting or leaf chaffing, and delivers an enjoyable 1 1/2 to 2 hour smoke. This is my cigar of choice for poker.

I don’t see what all the fuss is about
This isn’t a bad smoke by any means, I just don’t think it’s nearly as good as all the other reviews I’ve seen. For me, it was just average. Medium to full bodied, holds a good ash, a tad on the smokey side. From CAO, I’ve had better.

One of the finest maduro cigars ever created!
One of the finest cigars I have ever smoked, especially for the price. Rich, deep flavor, amazing draw, moist and consistent from the first puff to the nub.

A fun smoke.
I really enjoyed this cigar. It's about a 2 1/2 hour smoke, but a nice flavor and stays lit.

The best Flathead
The V642 is a mighty cigar and I cannot be alone in this opinion. Everything you love in a Flathead, only stronger, because the wrapper makes up more of the cigar in the lancero size. A must try for all Flathead fans, for all maduro fans. Awesome!!

Big Block=Big Flavor
This cigar is a thing of beauty. It's massive, but not overwhelming. A lot of flavor, and very well constructed. Also simple on the palat without trying to do too much it stays steady throughout the smoke. Great draw that doesn't get too bitter in the final third so you can enjoy it to the nub. Also not too heavy on the pocket. My new go to smoke from CAO. PSSITA

Barely enough power to make it off the line!! All jokes aside, it has great draw, but just not enough flavor or punch to be considered anywhere near a full strength cigar.

CAO Carb Last 1/3rd is a let down
The first 2/3rds of this stick were truly awesome. Full blown cocoa taste with a slight hint of chalk. Just like you would get from powdered cocoa without sugar. Great volumes of smoke, wonderful draw, & construction. But I am not paying for 2/3rds of a cigar, not at this price. The last 1/3rd of the cigar was bitter and acid like. I ordered a 5 pack and it was the same on them all after a week of rest in the humidor at 70/70. CA try smoking them down before you put them in the Top 25. CAO if you can make the last third like the first two I will buy a case.

Im kinda new to the cigar world. These cigars were suggested to me by a retailer to give a try (I love them and my wife doesnt hate their aroma, which is a serious bonus) the taste is great all the way down to the last cigar in the humidor. A great cigar for on the deck in tbe evenings.

Full flavor but not too strong, a consistent smoke, great cigar all day long. They're big though, so make room in the humi. These will always be in mine. My taste profile and favorites: Ernesto Perez Corillo La Historia, Bolivar Fuerte (Cofradia), TTT Trinidad, Padron (any)

Your Search Ends Here
A smooth full bodied cigar that delivers buckets of flavor. Cocoa, pepper and a little cedar in a stick that burns even and consistent. This cigar will truly stop your search. Once you enjoy it you will say "I have found it!"

Excellent cigar
I am smoking one as I write this.. Love the taste and how well it burns.. Never hollow and always burns evenly. The flat head has become my every day cigar...Please put the flat head in either the gentleman's deuce or the pick your own..You would get so much play off the offer..

The Bigblock size is just too big, but the Sparkplug size is terrific
I have tried the Bigblock (7x70) and its far too big, the Piston (6.5x42) which is good but not perfect, and the Sparkplug (4.5x50) which is my new favorite cigar overall. It is the perfect size for this blend plus it is uncut at the end which adds a burst of great flavor and aroma at light up. I have been a Diesel fan and tried almost every full bodied cigar available but this Flathead has become my new overall favorite at any price.
5 out of 5
One of my very favorites
Maybe my favorite cigar. Full bodied, but with great taste as well. Excellent construction, always draws and burns well. Hints of nut and spice make this a tough one to beat. Excellent smoke.
5 out of 5
Not bad
The cigar has great flavor and is smooth. Half of the cigars were rolled to tight, and it made it difficult to smoke. My opinion , the cost is to high for the 18 cigar count.

Great Stick..deserves its spot as #3 cigar of 2015
I've been lucky enough to work my way through most of the top 25 cigars of 2015 (according to Cigar Afficianado), and while there have been some excellent smokes in there, this is one of the only reviews I'm writing. This stick was excellent. I like a full-bodied smoke, and this beauty captures the essence of a full-bodied taste without being overwhelming. An excellent but subtle molasses undertone throughout the smoke tempers the beautiful spiciness of this stick. It was a little too subtle at first, but it quickly became substantial. Nice smoke...probably have many of these in my humidor soon.

I couldn't ask for a better smoke for the price.
This cigar was everything that a fisherman needs. It burned for a solid two hours and was extremely enjoyable from the halfway point to the nub. I would definitely buy it again

Awesome smoke 5 thumbs up!!
I ordered a 5 pack a few weeks ago, such a very good cigar probably one of my top 5 cigars of all time. Great taste, easy pull, even burn which is a plus for me. Tightly rolled it didn't fall apart as I was smoking. CAO CIGARS are always good but this one took it to another level. Might be ordering a box to enjoy with summer around the corner. A must have in your humidor 5 stars Across the board

CAO Flathead
These are the reason I smoke cigars. Can't tell you what my first one was, but I didn't like it. Gave it one more try with a Flathead.

CAO Flathead V554 Camshaft
I like these but originally order V660 Flatheads and was very disappointed when they were back ordered for so long I had and I had to settle for the V554 Camshafts, otherwise I'm satisfied with my order

Oh my! Another Full flavor bliss. Great start with a bit of tightness toward the middle. Opens back up with lots of smoke to the end. Great complex flavor, now my favorite CAO cigar.

GREAT SMOKE!!
I'm a huge fan of CAO, and this cigar is top of my CAO list. A nice strong flavor from first light to the last puff. Great burn with complex flavor. Perfect for a lazy afternoon on the porch. Cant miss with this one!

Vroooom
This cigar is awesome.. 500 horses but with quiet pipes. Strong but smooth. I tried to smoke one on my 30 minute drive home and could have gotten a DUI from the nic buzz i was feeling. This cigar is a sipper, not a gulper. I don't like the abrupt, squared off end but I can put up with it rather than go without. Not a big CAO fan but they do have a winner with this cigar. Inspite of the name, CAO needs to make a box pressed torpedo for this line.

Size is everything
I enjoy the flathead line. These seem to dry out quickly though. I should have gone with a larger ring gage. I like to put something bigger in my mouth.

Pure smoking pleasure.
Hands down the best full-bodied blend that CAO makes. A little peppery for the first couple puffs, but cigar puffing bliss every puff thereafter, well worth the burnt fingers at the nub. Will purchase again for sure.

This is a Monster of a Cigar
It is firm, well made and full of flavor. I can see whay it was the number 3 cigar of 2015. Best pat is it is about half the price of Number one and number two!

Excellent smoke

My new favorite
I'm a long time fan of CAO, especially the Brazilia GOL, the Flathead, both the Sparkplug and Carb are my new favorite. Good enough to be both an everyday cigar or that special cigar you want to share with a cigar buddy. Strong consistent flavor and very well constructed

CAO FLAT HEAD
Great smoke, even burn, commendable flavor

CAO FLATHEAD V660 CARB
Full Bodied smoke starts out very tame with hints of earth and black pepper!! As you really get into this big smoke the dark pepper picks up intensity and mixes with a cocoa like taste!! Smooth on the finish it was my go to cigar long before it received a #3 rating in some rag magazine and now I can't get them when I want them!!!

CAO Flathead V660 Carb
Great cigar, been smoking it for a year. Definitely deserves #3 or better on Cigar Aficionado.

CAO Flathead 660 #3 cigar of the year!
Ok, just got done smoking this beauty and I have to say it is by far one of the smoothest full-bodied cigars I've had in a very long time. At first the draw is a little tight and wasn't getting that much flavor bursting from the cigar and much easier to smoke. Never once did it start to taste harsh the whole way down it was smooth and easy to smoke. I give this one five stars easily. This is a great bang for the buck!

My new go to
Honestly, I normally prefer a pretty mild cigar. The full bodied ones just usually don't do anything that special for me. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy one from time to time. The flathead just knocks it out of the park. I enjoyed this one every bit as much as the Cuban Cohibas we hit the last time we were out of town. Perfect on a chilly N TX night with a pork shoulder in the smoker, a good book, and a cup of good coffee with some eggnog in it.

Great full-bodied little cigar
This is a terrific little, dark, full-bodied cigar. If I have about 20 minutes to enjoy a quality stick, this is where I go.
Customer Testimonials
Picked up a 5 pack of these on a whim and it has become a favorite. Nice dark and oily wrapper with a sweet flavor and full body. It is a tight box press, but has a smooth draw, definitely not too tight like you might expect after picking one up. Do not try to cut the end off these though, you will need a punch cutter because of the square cap.
Love this little cigar. Amazing dark and oily wrapper, beautifully box pressed, full of flavor; rich and sweet notes.... you will get a delicious blast of flavor as the foot opens; the first draw is nothing but sweet wrapper leaf. What a great blend and what a genius idea on the foot. Been a big fan of CAO for a long time and it's because of cigars like the Flathead Spark Plug. A great short smoke....excellent.
I don't know if I am glutton for punishment or what, but I am glad I am with these beauties. I have tried almost all of the CAO line and have been disappointed to downright disgusted with their cigars. Needless to say, as I ordered a 5 pack I was not really expecting a great cigar. BOY, WAS I WRONG. Super smooth smoke, with good flavor, easy draw, and good construction. Had to even out the burn a couple of times, but other than that it was a perfect smoke. I can honestly say best CAO I have had by far.
Excellent Cigar at great prices! I have had the pleasure of smoking the 770,660 and the little impeccable v450. I can honestly say that all of sizes have consistently tasted pretty much the same. The burn has always been smooth and even. If you are looking for a tasty Maduro that is not peppery and spicy, this is the one for you!
Visited B&M for butane and picked up a flathead out of curiosity knowing CAO makes exquisite smokes. I most certainly was not disappointed with the quality of this cigar. The smoke was plentiful, the flavors of earth and cocoa were amazing, and the ash stood the test of time. I would so recommend this cigar to anyone who enjoys a full-bodied cigar! I am here to order a box right now.
This cigar is one of the best I have smoked in a while, although I have smoked the Brasil and Italia in the past, this stick is quality, enjoyed it from start to finish, very consistent and not as harsh, and for a priceline between $5 and $6 you cant beat it, Highly recomended, trust "The Pie Man" on this one.
Nice even burn. Complex
